I love the idea of spending quality time together, and doing little special things to show that you care...
but shouldn't everyone be doing that all year round? Why just one day a year?
I believe that V-Day is a Hallmark Holiday and it's silly that people make such a big deal.
Luckily my love tells me all those sweet things all the time, and not just via a greeting card. I get the goosebumps and tingles from things that we do for each other all the time, and not just on the holidays. (yea yea, I can hear you gagging over there, R, B and D).
I'm going to VA beach this upcoming weekend (not because it's the weekend after v-day although that's fine either way). I'm happy that because of conferences and President's Day, I actually have a 4 day weekend! Woo! That makes it even MORE exciting because it means I won't be driving 4 1/2 hours for just a weekend (which is technically a day and a half without the driving).
I've been missing Dan a lot lately, and I think a long weekend together is just what I need.
In the meantime, I hope everyone has fun doing what they do, whether it's for V-Day or not, or if it's just for the heck of it!
P.S. I love re-discovering this picture every time I think of Valentine's Day.
